Are you a new or up and coming team leader? If you want to harness your leadership abilities, this course will give you the necessary skills and knowledge to lead a team successfully. 

Team leaders are often unsure of the best approach to leadership dilemmas. Through an appreciation for the intricacies of team leadership, you will gain a better understanding of the skills required for effective delegation, coaching, team member support and daily planning. This course will teach you when to apply the specific styles of leadership according to the situation and will build your confidence, skills, understanding and motivation as a team leader.

Being an effective team leader means understanding the team’s needs, the expectations of your organisation, and at times, being the glue between the two. With the strategies to build a more cohesive team, this program will benefit you, your team members and your organisation.

This Small Team Leadership course is a catalyst to help organisations achieve success, create enjoyable work environments, and allows greater understanding and skills when dealing with today's ad-hoc teams.

For those attending our public course, you’ll receive a free copy of Ken Blanchard's informative book on situational leadership entitled "Leadership and the One Minute Manager".
